Sorry there is no defending this spec, this damage etc. Its broken, been broken since mop ptr. I remember watching Braindeadly and he called it first. Said it was going to be absurd. I litterally cant believe something like this can stay in the game this long. When I do everything I can to line damage like you would vs any ranged class and pets can finish you off, not from 5 percent, not from 10 percent but to wipe someone out from 30 percent health while los' damage. The fact that BW damage modifiers are still in place. Or that readiness was given back to the spec, specially when the reason bm lost it to begin with in S5 was because it was broken. GC made the post that people " get the spec, it has a nice kit" Well ...no fuckin shit ...developers handed the spec everything from every other nich Marks or surv brought.
But if they want to nerf this the right way they need to address any and all of these: BW, Readiness for BM spec, Mastery for pets, and blink strike. Huge culprits. Because nerfing something like scatter makes marks and surv even more irrelevant when they are decent specs as is. The fact that you have to play those specs like you would any ranged utility class and set up burst, kills peels etc. When all we see are BM hunters EVERY 2ND QUE just mongo out the gate, pop zoo and proceed to spam arcane shot with no regard to their postion.
Wtf is this your first time playing BM? Killing the pet has always been a strategy since BC.
Yep, I remember the days of hunter/druid 2s matches where a pet dies and you could either prolong the loss slowely or leave. Pet rez has always been long for hunters to the point where Blizz turned a blind eye to abandon pet scripts for almost 2 expansions. But seriously come on man you been around long enought to know that every class relient on pets has had a way of bringing a pet back instantly on death a couple times a match, some class' even less relient on pet utility than the original pet class itself like hunter. Blizz handed hunters a pet rez once a match at the cost of pets biggest utility, roar of sac. Or you can spec for an emergency pet heal at the cost of taking 15 percent extra damage baseline.
So if your too dense to realize what he means Ill explain it for you. As marks if my pet dies its not the end of the world, yes I lose utility, and some miner damage, but for him being as relient as he is on pets not just for damage but for utility then its game breaking. Killing a pet isnt like the old days, It dies, and it dies fast. Bringing it back can be near impossible. And other class's still have mechanics to bring pets back at no cost to utility or survivability , instantly. Killing pets can be a strategy, but shouldnt be so easy vs one class and less punitive for others.
While Im not a fan of watching anything bm....the first clip the mage turded on the hunter to 10 percent and forced detter...by himself in 3 seconds. Mages come have a seat on the short bus, along with sp's bms and rogues, you guys cant comment on anything broken, dumb or skillless in this game
The only thing that is different between those specs is 2nd trinket. DMG is the same, u hate so much other specs than BM which is weird cos it's kinda same.. There are not many hunters in other specs because almost all like current BM and no 1 play it. For example Dice still do it and he made glad and stuff, Volzya plays survi and he made glad too. It's nvm, if u are 1900 as MM u just suck, not about that u dont play BM.
Wow lol get out of here with that shit. Only thing different is the second trinket? you realize every burst window with the same abilities hits harder with BW? the whole powershot fiasco with BW modifiers? BM pet by itself is the best dot in the game. How bout the spec recieving everything the other specs had AND retaining its own unique skill set from prior expansions? Second trinket only? That second trinket alone negates and drs everything it breaks. Not to mention frees your dispeller from having to do it. Your the very definition of BM hero turd that the rest of the community hates.
Funniest part is you calling him out on being 1900 terrible because he sucks. Cant wait to see how good your doin when Blizz finally guts this handicap friendly spec. Hoping to see a BW modifier nerf to all abilities in 5.3 before it ships. Then at least marks/ surv wont be affected.
higher skill cap because you have to babysit an at times mentally handicap npc .Biggest turnoff for people that have hated relying on pets for so much when it was just utility tied to em. But seriously ..I dont even know what higher skill cap means anymore. All in all two way different playstyles. But the fact remains the spec is forgiving . Yeah cc the hunter and or the pet. When the spec has more outs from cc than anything else. Great hunters at the top of the ladders that play the spec great still have an uphill battle with comps they meet. But the same hunters can make any spec that is the best work at the top playing againts the best. . You cant argue that more average players succeed with BM than any hunter spec before it , even after stampede. Even triple dps didnt graduate so many hunters into their first 2200 then this...
Well Im sure he is just team hopping like most everybody. So calling out his ratings is dumb. But its still a flawed arguement. The problem is I think the majority of the community , not just hunters are just tired of looking for the gimmick one shot scenario. Whether the crits line up or not. so what? its not a fun play style. Your second method of procs lining up. Thats always been fun waiting for procs to line up before attempting a burst oppurtunity. but seriously...waiting for pets to be at certain hp and hoping you get procs in that window while your in a position to open a burst? Dont see that being a viable method when that many random factors are an arguement for viability.
I think this class is grasping at straws . Aimed shots and powershot are common and simple to get off in bgs where we know blizz is focusing their attention since cata released. Wont make a bit of difference how tough it is to do it reliably in arena. The changes to marks in patch along with aspect changes were STRICTLY PVE. The raid parses from all sources show hunters are lower on dps. They are simply making the rotations cleaner and easier to do. Even todays hotfix on serpent sting was strictly a pve change. Blizz is not concerned with hunter performance in 3v3.
well, its apparent Blizz did not mind killing off arena completely. They full well knew this game could not coming out of beta the way it was and have any hope of balance. But its no suprise to anyone really is it?? to make it even worse for people that enjoyed the hunter class...is the catering to the " your latest tame pet challenge" crowd with a talent tree, leveling bracket and expansion that will revolve around one spec.
I think...arena has really been nothing but a pain in their ass from its inception with the constant calls for balance from a small minority of their players. and this really is the killing blow it seems.
Still bad design, its the only resource tied to spam ability to regen ( focus) to spam it and move you have to be in fox, and to be in fox your not only giving up the ranged damage bonus which is bad enough but your giving up your survivability next expansion too. Aspect of the hawk will grant 15 % damage reduction. Dead zone or no deadzone, the mechanics of focus regen tied to an ability that requires its own aspect to use at the cost of doing less damage and having less surviability is stupid. And no this isnt some big cooldown ability like reck etc, this is every 6 to 10 seconds of swapping.
ya know...everyone complains about pve pieces here, or some trinket or a set of daggers. Suggestions flying around like "remove this trinket and its fixed etc" Why cant people..or rogues in general come to the real conclusion that the most brokent thing about all this is that the class can wear all that shit and not have to suffer the consequences. if this company wants to remove pve from arena and not affect their precious raid performance quatas then rogue survivability needs to go down some. "small changes to expose" " remove vial" arent gonna happen rogues. dont toss out dumb shit suggestions that you know this company wont do. Address vanish, prep, and smoke bomb somehow. or remove garrote and disarm from their massive bag of tricks. this class just has too much
so let me understand this. you are upset because your not allowed to wear pve gear which you freely admit your class can do and get away with because of its control and survivability. To be able to do what you are admiting is "retarded" . And the culprit of this entire mess is somehow the class's pigion holed into full pvp gear. Who now have an unfair advantage because they can survive the burst put out by broken mechanics in this game. I mean...since the inception of arena play the entire community has been advocating abolishing pve gear in arena. And the sponsors of this and other tourneys are banning it to lvl the playing field but you find that unfair. gotcha
